Wow, this is richer, deeper, more serious and solid than even the 2009 from the same chateau. The flavours are well fleshed out, feel instantly that this has a huge life ahead of it, and once again proof of just how good this vintage is. Juicier on the palate, both tannins and acidity higher than the 2009, but liquorice, black cherry, dark coffee also apparent. Hugely persistent, this does not taste like a second wine. Very impressive, and a value choice, as you can buy this wine for £20 in the UK. Still need to give this some time to unfurl. 92+. Highly recommended. Drink 2016-2026
